JK - PRESERVATION PARTS

Post by Magic8Ball » Fri Feb 14, 2014 5:52 am

What a load of B@ll@x - I guess the advertising guru's call this re-branding :evil:

Check it out, when you click on Split it says there are 75 items ....its all Bay and Service items you can buy anywhere, it must be me but the words Preservation and JK just don't seem to work :wink:

Well I clicked on the link and was taken to page that had some new old stock carburetors, pedal rubbers and headlights.


Really?
No, it was the same as you - all every-bay value items. :D :( :twisted: :lol:

For me it was a simple choice of preserving my money and going elsewhere.
yes it is a bit much to call these preservation parts.

They are superb arnt they, tried to tell me the quality "Empi"044 heads were superb quality http://www.justkampers.com/044-cylinder-head.html and pumped the price by £50 whilst I was looking at them. Why did they ditch them? Cb sueing?bought a top quality quiet pack, returned it to the as it was such poor quality and wouldnt sit on the ports!sorry everyone rant over:-)

VENT IT MAN ...........let it out :wink:

I suppose the real problem is that 2nd hand spares are drying up so it's a re-manufacturers world :(
Just wish i could work out what they are copying from :?:
If only more would take your stance Marvelwear and send the goods back, that way they will see how hard and how much work is involved making them fit 8O

Thankfully there are a lot of guys out there with a range they call ............'made to measure ' :wink:

I've just learnt that there is an even newer range bursting onto the VW scene, easily identifiable as they are stamped with the letters KK. When i enquired what the letters stood for i was informed this was for the new range known as ' Korean Kwality ' 8O

Just Kampers are good for camping equipment but isn't it like anything else: Just throw another 'in' word against it and you can mark up the price.
Vintage, retro, eco, best quality, etc.
Interested in 1/4 light/sliding window locks? Please PM me.
Available colours: black, blue, red, yellow, white, grey, green and purple
